ZenTiger An eroding voter base

With figures like this, maybe she'll start to worry that her voter base will not even be able to vote her back in? From Mojo:

Prime Minister Helen Clark yesterday revealed the finding in the previously unreleased 2006 Adult Literacy and Life Skills Survey ... She said about 380,000 Kiwis were identified in the international survey as being at level one, a level at which they would be unable to determine how to use a fire extinguisher from the instructions written on the bottle.

...The Labour-led Government is considering raising the school leaving age to 17 as part of a suite of measures to boost students' achievement and get them ready for the workforce.

If your how-to voter cards are anything like ours, it won't matter, unless they're so hopeless they can't even scratch some markings on a piece of paper.
